Fyrinnae’s Pantydraco

Fyrinnae’s Pantydraco

Posted on Monday, at

This has full coverage, but it’s not completely even. It’s thinner in some spots than others. It’s not sheer in some places, it just doesn’t look best when it’s swept on. Patted into place, it looks great! It’s a blue-based gold-green, so it looks like it might lean warm but it’s just barely cool. The shade is really interesting: it blends well when blending into another color or smoked out over skin or...

Neutrogena’s Age Shield Face Sunblock Lotion SPF 110

Neutrogena’s Age Shield Face Sunblock Lotion SPF 110

Posted on Friday, at

For years I would wear Neutrogena’s Dry Touch sunblock on my face, and just wear really minimal makeup, so that I wouldn’t get that heavy feeling on my face. When this came out, I was interested to try it and see how it worked. This comes in two levels of sun protection, 70 SPF or 110 SPF. The formula absorbs into my face very quickly, and doesn’t have any interactions with the moisturizing serum that I use. I can...

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipstick in Violet Smoke

NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipstick in Violet Smoke

Posted on Thursday, at

I like this color, but as an eye shade or a blush instead of a lip color. It’s just barely too light to work as a lip color for me. The application is easy enough, but without a primer of some kind, it transfers and fades away fairly quickly.

This is a VERY dark color, bordering on blackened purple. The red appears at certain angles of the light, and shows best with a multi-coat manicure. I get full opacity with two coats, but I found that if I wanted more red tones, I needed that third coat.

Contains one solid color and one effects polish, like so many other polish duos from this company. Drty Girl, the opaque shade, is more of a dark blue-red with deepset shimmer. Always On Top is the “topper” that can be nearly opaque with three coats…but not entirely opaque. It’s primarily a pink sparkle with some pale blue and purple.

Very close to TKB Trading’s Sparkle Gold, but with finer particles and a stronger yellow base. The color shades to tanned orange when the light hits it at an angle.
